Mitigating Techniques for OBI in an RFoG Architecture

While RFoG offers great potential for increased capacities for FTTx, there are some challenges introduced through this technology. The RF transmissions by two cable modems at the same time generate two simultaneous optical node transmissions. If the two ONUs have identical wavelengths, Optical Beat Interference (OBI) can be generated at the receiver. Ideally, one subscriber would transmit when no one else is transmitting. However, in reality, there is always more than one home required to transmit at the same time. The upstream wavelengths of two or more transmitters have to be very close or identical to create OBI.

3G/4G/5G Small Cell Deployments over HFC

As wireless networks evolve from 4G/LTE to 5G, small cells will play a critical role in delivering the high bandwidth, low-latency connections required by the myriad of potential 5G use cases. With regulators opening up new low, mid & high-band millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum for 5G, MSOs are uniquely positioned to create ultra-dense 5G wireless networks by leveraging their existing Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) networks & emerging technologies such as Full Duplex DOCSIS® (FDX) & Distributed Access Architectures (DAA). Our objective for this presentation is to show how Lindsay’s products can enable MSOs to deploy small cells in a rapid & cost effective manner leveraging their existing networks.

Cable’s Value Proposition for Small Cells – Small Cells, Big Impact

The much-anticipated small cell era has clearly begun in earnest. With the rapid growth of smartphones and mobile data traffic, and the emergence of 4G/LTE (and soon 5G) wireless networks, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) are scrambling to install compact, environmental-friendly femto, pico and micro cells throughout their footprints to support that growth, boost their coverage and capacity, and maintain or even enhance subscriber Quality of Service (QoS) without breaking the bank or building new cell towers and finer lines.
